If you’ve ever purchased a Composite Deck or any other wood product, you’ve probably seen the term “exotic”. Exotic refers to species that are different from regular, or ordinary WPC. On the other hand, exotic composite may be rare or not. It may refer to a species that is being sold in an unsaturated market, which raises the demand and price for the composite. The high demand/price makes the species an exotic type of composite. If an exotic species become more popular, and begin to saturate the market, its demand and price go down, and eventually is will no longer be considered exotic. Buying specific species in the lumber industry is determined by what’s in fashion at the moment. Manufacturers constantly waiver over such demands.
Strength, Quality, and Responsibility
The strength and quality of exotic WPC make them ideal for wood Decks. One benefit of exotic composite is that the color of exotic WPC is uniform throughout, creating a gorgeous finish when it is stained. Also, exotic WPC are usually harder and more durable than more common varieties, making them less prone to dents and other imperfections.
When examining an exotic composite, research the manufacturer or supplier. The consumer should know whether a product is produced by a company committed to responsible extraction and reforestation. This is especially important as some people are wary of investing in Composite decks because of the perceived environmental ramifications. As long as you buy responsibly, you can truly enjoy a beautiful exotic Composite Deck.
Some examples of exotic WPC are African Wenge, Kauri, Amendoim, Jarrah, Basswood, Brazilian Rosewood, Teak, African Rosewood, Tiete Rosewood, Brazilian Rosewood, Iroko, African Sapele, Santos Mahogany, Australian Cypress, Brazilian Walnut, Tigerwood, Brazilian Oak, Bamboo Bangkirai, Brazilian Cherry , Kempas, Merbau, Bangkirai, Melia and Balau.

This means reading with respect to potential of composite decking for holding specific load all through specific joist spacing. It is also necessary to evaluate the different decking board prices charged by retailers as one retailer would offer cheaper price as compared to another for decking of the same brand.
